Canon UK ambassador Andy Rouse has been active on Instagram apparently teasing a new camera body. I would think he’s not out using another company’s gear, so what could he be talking about?
He mentions using “new kit” and saying “I had to take the motor drive speed down from 30 fps to 5fps as I was taking too many sharp shots”
So what could he be teasing and/or testing? The obvious answer would be the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Andy was one of the early testers of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, so that’s not too much of a leap to assume. We were told back in February that testing had begun on the EOS-1D X Mark II replacement.
Is it possible that the EOS-1D X Mark III will shoot 30fps with the mirror locked up?
There’s also a possibility he’s testing out the new 32.5mp...

In his tweet thread he specifically said this image was not taken with RF glass; he said none of the upcoming lenses are long enough.

I wonder if it’s either a new 300 f/2.8 or 500 f/4...

No matter what he's been using, this is a perfect picture.
Well, I was lying :eek:, it does matter...
Looking at the diffuse background, it sure was a long telephoto lens, EF 500 f.5,6:love: ???

There is essentially no background so how can you say it is a long telephoto 500/5.6?
 

Kit.

There is no background, nor is there any way to judge how distant is the background.
There is a very smooth 4-5 centimeter (to the scale of the cuckoo) bokeh of something that looks like thin branches. Can be a DS lens.

This thread is about new kit. You’re the old kit. What gives?

Yes maybe a 1DXIII.
I’m really interested in what that camera will be. It perhaps will be the last great DSLR
